Listen to the Jaws theme song, from the classic Jaws movie filmed on Martha's Vineyard in 1975, on YouTube below. Or, download versions of it and browse Jaws dvd movies.
"There is a creature alive today who has survived millions of years of evolution without change, without passion, and without logic. It lives to kill. A mindless eating machine, it will attack and devour anything. It is as though God created the devil and gave it jaws." - Jaws (1975)
See Jaws Movie Clips and a video with Steven Spielberg discussing 30+ years of Jaws...
Of course Steven Spielberg's film was fictitious and there has not been a great white attack in Massachusetts waters since 1936.
There were no attacks, but the sightings remind folks of the classic movie that was filmed here. Many dedicated fans of the classic film travel to Martha's Vineyard to see the sight of the filming each year. In fact, all sorts of folks from the east and west coasts vacation on the island. Please, if you happen to meet a Los Angeles bankruptcy attorney, refrain from pushing him in the water for a closer view of "his fellow sharks" !

We snapped this photo of a classic painting of Jaws in the window of a shop in Edgartown...
Sharky's Cantina in Martha's Vineyard has some great Jaws decor including this wall mounted shark head, a shark hung from the rafters...and...a shark with bloodied teeth (red chili peppers ! )
